We used to have a linear-history policy when we started with mercurial
-- obviously mistakes where made over time (and I'm definitely not happy
with that when browsing through the history, doing bisects, etc)
At least for trivial changes all relevant information should be
contained in the commit-message itself (of course one question is until
when is a change "trivial")
I found the setting (under "Settings/General/Merge requests"). There is
also a semi-linear history option (essentially the same, but with a
merge-commit), which might be a compromise to at least avoid commit
graphs spanning over hundreds of commits).
Especially, once we seriously start with CI, I totally agree that having
all relevant information of the PR available would be great.

That's not typical usage in GitLab.
The main reason not to is that it will destroy the information from the MR.
If you do a merge, it will include any text I write in the MR
description, the user who submitted the MR, the comitter, the MR's ID
etc. - which is all useful information for record keeping.
If you cherry-pick my commits you will lose all that.
It would make sense to keep the commit history if it were linear from
the start like the Wine project's Git repo, but for history which
already has many merges, I don't see much benefit, personally.

I don't seem to be able to rebase/fast-forward merge this (I don't
like polluting our history with trivial changes).
@Gael: Are there any project settings which need to be done for that?

Does it deserve such a momentous designation? You be the judge.

I just granted you Reporter rights (as well as to two other people
who requested access -- I did not grant Developer access, of course).
I think the manual approval of new members won't be as tedious as
the previous procedure of granting access to our bugzilla. And
having a manual step with a small time delay might be a good way to

Ok... manual approval sounds tedious. I would recommend figuring
out a way to automate the approval e.g. with a button on the
website. Otherwise, it's just pointless admin for you guys.
Anyway, my username is "jhol", so can you make me reporter?

Thanks for this. It's going to make my work so much easier.
I just wanted to resubmit my int8 ostream patches, but it
seems that I
dodn't have permissions to submit a merge request. Do you need
up the MRs to non-members?
thank you for trying. I was indeed unsure whether MR was open to
anybody. According to this page:
https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/user/permissions.html, MR is open for
"reporter" members only, meaning that we'll have to manually
approve people wanting to join the project to propose MR.
For the record, compared to "guests" (aka everybody for a public
project as Eigen), reporters have the following additional
